Q. Is there a cost for the consultation?

A. No charge for the consultation. We come to your home when it's convenient for you while me meet both you and your pets. We will ask about their routine and any likes and or dislikes they may have as well as any other pertinent information such as food location, litter box, alarm etc. We then obtain your veterinarian info and vet release form as well as filling out any necessary paperwork. We gather 2 sets of keys, one for the sitter/walker and the other is kept on file in our office safe in case of emergency. We will also need a current Rabies vaccine certificate on file.


Q. What form of payment do you accept?


A. We accept credit card, check or cash. Payment is due by the first day of service.


Q. What happens if for example our plane is late and need you to extend services?


A. No problem, just give us a call and we will make sure your pets are safe and well cared for. During any vacation stay, we do ask that you notify the sitter as soon as you arrive home so they can be sure your pets are okay. If we do not hear from you, there will be a charge for continued service until we hear that you are home.


Q. ​Are my house keys safe?


A. ​Absolutely. The first key is always with the sitter while in use, when the job is completed for the day it is placed in our safe until it is needed again. The keys are coded and have no other information that would link them to you. 


Q. Do you charge extra for holidays?


​A. There is a $10 extra charge per service on all major holidays including Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, Easter Sunday, Mother's Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day and Thanksgiving Day.


Q. Why should I hire a pet sitter?


​A. ​There is much less stress on your pet and you when you hire the services of a trained professional. Whether you decide to board at The All Paws Inn or keep them in their own home, just knowing they are getting the care they need and deserve makes your time away much more enjoyable. We also send daily text/pictures letting you know how they're doing which always puts a smile on your face!


Q. What are the benefits of daily dog walking?


​A. Whether your dog is showing any signs of misbehaving while your gone, (chewing, relieving in the house, excessive barking, fence jumping etc) or not, with daily walking you will see a difference in their outward happiness and general demeanor. It's health benefits are physical, mental and emotional. Dogs are meant to move freely on a daily basis; it's simply their makeup and if they are not allowed to have that daily forward motion, they are just not happy inside.​
